The Holy Pink Morons of PatrickStar is a massive, orderly nation, ruled by The Magic Conch with an iron fist, and notable for its deadly medical pandemics, complete lack of prisons, and state-planned economy. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless, devout population of 4.763 billion Patrick are kept under strict control by the oppressive government, which measures its success by the nation's GDP and refers to individual citizens as "human resources."

The enormous, corrupt, moralistic, well-organized government is dominated by the Department of Defense, although Spirituality is also considered important, while Social Policy and Welfare aren't funded at all. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Shell City. The average income tax rate is 93.7%.

The Patrick economy, worth 814 trillion Patricks a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. However, for those in the know, there is an enormous, deeply entrenched, highly specialized black market in Arms Manufacturing, Uranium Mining, and Woodchip Exports. The private sector mostly consists of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, but the government is looking at stamping this out. Average income is an impressive 171,062 Patricks, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.3 times as much as the poorest.

The bayonet is cutting-edge technology, sushi is sold on the black market, citizens are barcoded to keep track of their movements, and peace talks occasionally rack up a higher body count than the wars they seek to stop. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. PatrickStar's national animal is the Patrick, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation, and its national religion is Conchism.

PatrickStar is ranked 183,457th in the world and 189th in Texas for Most Extensive Civil Rights, with 4.93 Martin Luther King, Jr. Units.
